Bill spent the last four decades as an engineer, entrepreneur, and venture capitalist riding the bleeding edge of the technology revolution—from the breakup of the Bell System through the present Great Stagnation. You can find his work biography here. He is currently a fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a contributor to the Foundation for Economic Education, and the host of RealClear Radio Hour, which is broadcast 27 times weekly on 17 stations in 15 cities including Bloomberg Boston and Bloomberg San Francisco.
Bill has been a frequent public speaker for over 25 years and is a regular guest lecturer on college campuses. In 2011 Bill was a finalist for the Hoiles Prize for excellence in American journalism and in October 2013, Bill was awarded the twentieth Warren T. Brookes Journalism Fellowship. He is the recipient of the 2016 Beth Hoffman prize for economic writing from the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE).
Once an outspoken libertarian activist working to restore the founding ideals of our constitutionally limited republic of strictly enumerated powers, Bill despairs for the future. Bowing to the unstoppable ascendancy of entitlement democracy—an income-redistribution, welfare/warfare state answerable only to the will of Boobus Americanus and the depredations of populist politicians—Bill’s chosen task is to chronicle the decline and fall of our once great nation.
